Europe's gas reserves are at their lowest seasonal level in more than a decade. Global gas and coal shortages are pushing energy prices higher, which in turn is negatively impacting businesses and economies in the region. Against the background of such a deficit, prices are likely to continue growing in winter. Energy independence is now the EU's main goal.
- Support levels: 1.1588, 1.1564, 1.1453
- Resistance levels: 1.1671, 1.1717, 1.1772, 1.1802, 1.1835
From the technical point of view, the EUR/USD trend is bearish. However, the MACD indicator has become inactive. It indicates that the sellers have stopped putting pressure. Under such market conditions, traders should consider sell deals from the resistance levels near the moving average, as the price has deviated from the middle line. Buy trades should be considered only from the support levels with additional confirmation in the form of a buyers' initiative.
Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.1717 resistance level and fixes above, the mid-term uptrend will likely resume.
